This month's theme is Beauty Blast and is a universe of brilliant beauties.


Check out that bag! It's so adorable and they did a great job with the print.


Coolway Stronghold Spray ($3.02) - This hair spray can be used on wet hair to style or on dry hair to hold your style. I don't wear hairspray a lot, so this might be given away or stored for when other hairsprays I have are used up. It does come in a spray bottle rather than an aerosol bottle, which seems to not work as well for me.

SinfulColors (Kissy) ($1.99) - Indirect light, the bottle looks greener/teal. It is a duochrome with tons of glitter pieces and I absolutely love the shade of this polish, but SC is so smelly that I just can't use it. For this polish, though, I might just have to try. Rarely do I find a mainstream polish that I like this much, but this one is pretty great.


Beaute Basics Gel Eyeliner with Gel Eyeliner Brush (Navy) ($9.99) - The color of this is great, it's a gorgeous lighter navy blue shade. The formula is super questionable, though. It doesn't feel like any other gel eyeliner I've used before, it is very liquid-y and doesn't apply at all like a gel. I'm not sure if this one was bad, but there was some liquid accumulation on top and the liner smeared even minutes after swatching on my hand. I definitely will not be putting this on my eyes and won't be passing it alone to anyone else either, just out of my own caution.

Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara ($7.39) - Definitely one of the better mascaras I've tried, and it couldn't have come at a better time. My current mascara is about to run out, so I might as well start using this. The brush is really nice and the formula is a great one to use. It's a great black and dries nicely.

tre'Stique Mini Matte Lip Crayon (Florence Fig) ($10.67) - A few months ago, I received tre'Stique's eye shadow crayons and now I have a lip crayon. This one is a wonderful color. It's a neutral-pink and a bit darker than my normal lip color, which is good for me. I've been using a bit darker colors to expand my horizons. I love that it's a matte finish, so it will look great for almost any look! 


This bag is valued at $33.06, which isn't the greatest but it isn't terrible! Even with products that I either refuse to use or probably won't use, I still was able to get the value of out it! Best of all, though, I get to try out another tre'Stique product. One of these days, I will probably buy a few different bundles and try out the whole line.
